The Toyota Supra returned to the market after a two-decade absence with sharper reflexes, extroverted styling, advanced safety systems, and modern infotainment technology. This fifth-generation coupe has BMW DNA, drawing much hardware from the Z4 roadster and the German automaker’s parts bin. But the Supra outshines its European cousin, thanks to Toyota’s unique tuning. The Supra is wildly entertaining, and the driving experience is far more rewarding than the cold, hard numbers suggest.
Under the hood is a BMW turbocharged six-cylinder engine that delivers robust power on demand, and is perfectly orchestrated by the slick, quick-shifting automatic transmission. The rear-drive coupe races from 0-60 mph in a scant 4.6 seconds, making it quicker than some V8-powered muscle cars. Plus, we got 27 mpg overall--commendable for such a focused sports car.
